Hi there and welcome to the forum.  Well, I have to say that I don't fully understand long term living together relationships . ..   I can see how it starts that way but once it is established that you are going to be together for a the duration, I'm with you--  I think it is odd that people don't take that step.  

However, perhaps once you are already living together, your boyfriend thinks "what's the point?"  So doesn't see value in it.  If that is the case, then you must let him know that YOU value it (if you do) and that should motivate him.  there are also legal things that are different for married partners and common law partners.  

So, if you are wishing to be married, start talking about it to him.  See where his head is at with it.  good luck

Definitely find out his thoughts on marriage if you haven't already had this discussion. If you have had that, then ask if there is something that he feels is holding him back.  Make it clear that you won't judge him for his answer but honestly want to know because to you it seems the natural next step and you want to understand where he's coming from.

Why buy the cow when you are getting the milk for free. Look here, you tell that boy that he needs to propose soon or you are walking. 6 years?! Hell no.
